Building burcell.org

Welcome to bpurcell.org, the personal homepage of Brandon Purcell. I started building bpurcell.org many, many years ago to share information I ran across everyday in my role as a Support Engineer and Consultant for Macromedia/Adobe. As a support engineer and consultant I always had a lot to blog about but as I moved into managment roles at Adobe my technical content dwindled.

I currently work as the Director of Technology for Universal Mind. My primary responsiblity is managing the SpatialKey project and it has been an amazing experience. I have been spending a lot of time working with Amazon Ec2 and will share my experiences through the blog in the future. I truly believe that Cloud Computing is the IT platform of the future and we have built the SpatialKey architecture on top of Ec2.

I ran into a confusing issue with ColdFusion 8 that could affect users that install the enterprise version with the evaluation option and are using multiple instances.

Here is what led up to this issue occuring for me

  1. Installed ColdFusion 8 as a multi server install with the evaluation option
  2. Created an additional instance of ColdFusion
  3. Entered in a valid serial number into the new instance that I had just created.
  4. After the evaluation period expired the server responded with a blank page for requests although some of the requests completed successfully.
  5. Looking in the error log for the new server I found the following error.

11/12 17:49:21 error IP license restriction is in effect.  Can only accept connection from either localhost or five IP addresses, attempted from 192.168.2.9.  Previous accesses were from [ {192.150.x.x}  {192.168.x.x}  {192.168.x.x}  {192.168.x.x}  {192.168.x.x} ].

Of course I had seen this error many times before but in the CF admin (of the new instance I had created) I saw that CF was running with an enterprise license so it should not have the IP restriction. It occured to me that the main CFusion administrative server did not have the license key. After entering the license key in the CFusion admin and restarting both instances everything cleared up. This will probably rarely happen but it could be really confusing if it occurs so I hope this helps someone.

Brandon, 2 years later, this tip saved me a lot of headache in CF9 Enterprise. Thanks!!


And three years later, it helped again. Just don't install a dev edition on a production machine!
